How To Create An Impressive Portfolio On Canva

In literal minutes.

This blog post will teach you how to create your first-ever portfolio on Canva, designed to impress!

You’re a new freelancer looking to land your first gig.

You’ve been scouring job posts and job application websites, trying to find a description that matches your freelancing skills.

A part-time gig is great, but a part-time job that has the potential to grow into a full-time position is even better.

What is a portfolio?

You come across the same roadblock everywhere — you’re required to submit a curriculum vitae (CV) or a resume. According to The Balance Careers, a resume is competency-based. It showcases your personal and working skills, achievements, and experiences.

A CV is credential-based, providing information about your education, literary accomplishments, professional affiliations, and memberships.

A portfolio is a mixture of the above — it is a report that represents your qualifications, training, experiences, past work, and education. You’ll need an impressive one when vying against hundreds of other candidates for the same post.
